    Can't open .c4d file in After Effects, and the file is shown as exec file


      I can't open a .c4d file in After Effects that was created using Cinema 4D lite integrated in AE.

      The icon of the file that I created is shown as an exec file, unix executable, although the file extension seems to be .c4d.


      The file was created in the following way:

      1. From AE, Went to File>New>New C4D file

      2. Created a file and saved it in Cinema 4D Lite

      3. Went back to AE and the file icon is shown as exec

      *the file was not taken from internet. I was created by following the above way


      AE version: AE CC

      Cinema 4D Lite: 16.038

      OS: OS X Yosemite 10.10.5

      Processor: 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5

      Memory: 8GB 1600MHz DDR3


      I'm very new to Cinema 4D and have no idea what happens.

      I'd love some help.


      Thank you!
